Human beings have been practicing cruel ways to mass slaughter animals for their consumption for a long time. The tradition of whale-slaughtering is an annual event that take place in the Faroe Islands where the blue sea turns into a horrifying red color as dead bodies of whales and dolphins fill it up.
Apparently, this tradition goes back to the year 1584 and the people of the Faroe Islands have been consuming whale meat since the times of the Vikings. Communities depend on the hundreds of kilos of meat each whale provides, which is also a major part of their natural diet.
It is a communal activity where all the locals get together to ruthlessly slaughter at least 800 whales and dolphins.
How all whales killed? The fishermen enter the water in boats to the bay, they surround the whales and lead them towards land to be beached and slaughtered. When the whale is close enough, a hook is interested into their blowhole to bring them further up to shore. Its neck is then stabbed with a spinal lance and its spinal cord is severed, which further cuts the bloody supply to its brain. The whale loses consciousness and dies within a few seconds.
An entire pod of whales is killed in less than 10 minutes. The entire community pitches in the slaughtering while it takes place in place sight.
CAN’T BELIEVE THAT SUCH CRUELTY HAPPENS IN AN ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBLE COUNTY LIKE DENMARK.
